I’m on F1 visa currently with OPT ending in May 2021. Thinking of going to India for a month in December and coming back in January. Is it advisable to go right now? Thinking strictly from a visa perspective.

What are you gonna do if you don’t win H1B in 2021? I’m in same boat

I don’t think H4 EAD is an option for me. So day 1 CPT is the only way to stay I guess. I also have a masters but I honestly don’t see any other option currently.

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.

The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died. Our closest friend lives in Brazil. We would love to have her take care of the kids - but don’t know if there is any way around immigration laws to have that happen if she were willing to move to US. My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.

If you have a pending I485 and your FAD is current, how do you answer the question on needing future immigration sponsorship? Technically I don’t, but that’s assuming that I’ll either use the AOS EAD or my GC will be approved before needing to renew my visa…..life of an immigrant!
